PORT ANGELES — Every Port Angeles player outscored all of Port Townsend’s team in an Olympic League boys golf dual meet at Peninsula Golf Club on Tuesday.
Senior Joe Barnes was match medalist for the second match in a row with a 1-over 37 to spark the Roughriders to the 208-297 victory.
“I like our consistency right now,” Port Angeles coach Mark Mitrovich said.
“To have scores in the 40s — the mid- to low-40s — at this particular point in the season is very promising for us.”

Payton had one birdie and four pars while Atwell shot six pars.
Junior Trey Hoover shot 45 with three pars.
“I’m enjoying having Trey Hoover in his first year playing on the team,” Mitrovich said.
“He’s filling in nicely on the varsity team and making contributions. He has definitely contributed to our two wins, and he is a fine addition to our team.”
Junior Austin Underwood, meanwhile, was right behind with a 46, earning one par.
Jack Bishop led Port Townsend with a 52 while Grayson Pennell was next with 56 and Keegan Khile shot a 61.
